DIY drawer organizer

I love making things out of scrap, especially if it is useful. I think it is as great way to save money and the environment!!!!!! I made this as a sock drawer organizer using an old catalog from Gap. I found a great step by step on how to fold these lovely boxes with pictures!

                                                  Before                                           After
     

The square piece of paper I used is 26.5 x 26.5 cm.
The finished product came to be 9.5L x 9.5W x 4.5H cm

Because I was using cardstock it was hard to fold down the edges so I used my face cream to fold down the edges. After folding all the boxes I stuck all of these boxes together with double sided tape and it is complete :)

    1. Thanks Thanks,
      I am not trying to collect enough nice paper from magazines for my tank tops and other drawers too :)
      I can imagine that it would be great for all those bobbi pins and elastics

  3. WOW!! I ♥ this idea! I've wrapped gifts in pretty advertisements from magazines, but I couldn't have come up with this!

    Definitely going to try this as a jewellery organizer (for all my little earrings)

    Can't wait to start with it! :)
